If you’re a fan of the Bottega Veneta velvet slingbacks we’ve featured previously then I have good news for you – they are in the Net a Porter sale for just £118, down from £295. Now, you can call me an old misery if you want but I have to question the wisdom of buying velvet shoes – won’t horrible things happen to them in the rain? If you still want them (maybe you’ll just wear them indoors), get in quick as they are selling out fast.
